Mashi – Sudanese Style Stuffed Vegetables by Rania Mugammar

Mashi is a well loved traditional Sudanese dish, often employing the help of a group of women and girls to core the many vegetables used in the dish. Mahshi does not require extensive skills but it does take a bit of time to execute, the flavors are savoury, slightly sweet and rich punctuated by the herbal flavor of fresh dill.

Nigerian Puff Puff by 9jaFoodie

Puff-puff (called bofrot in Ghana) is a popular West African street snack made from simple ingredients,. Flour, sugar and yeast is combined to make a dough which is then deep fried. This snack is loved by adult and kids alike. You may elevate it by adding your own twist from spices like ginger and pepper to dark chocolate; sky is really the limit.

Tamarind Chicken (Caribbean Style) by Charlene

Tamarind is a fruit that’s very popular in the Caribbean, Africa (where its origins lie) and also within the Asian continent. It’s safe to conclude that both regions are quite fond of using the fruit. In case you’re unsure of what tamarind is, that’s okay because I’m more than happy to explain what it is. It’s a soft edible fruit enclosed in a brown shell that bears a dark hue containing small stones.
